Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Palladian Cenacle

The Intercultural Institute of Comparative Music Studies continues, with this event, the project devoted to contemporary dance and theatre, and their relations with non-European cultures,having begun a few years with Carolyn Carlson, followed by Shobana Jeyasingh in 2015, authoritative Indian choreographer, who has settled in London where she founded her own company, the Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company, one of the major English dance companies.

After holding in San Giorgio a Masterclass in 2015, in which many professional dancers have participated, some with scholarships, in 2016 the choreographer proposes a site-specific performance conceived for the spaces of Fondazione Giorgio Cini, which will take place in the Palladian Cenacle.
